How was your experience?
The boat ride to and from Cold Spring was very comfortable, and the boat was nice and spacious. The bar on the first deck was stocked well, I had an everything bagel and coffee in the morning and cookies on the way back. The ride was beautiful - there were plenty of opportunities for great photos. On the ride up there is a guided tour of the Hudson. The tour is nice, in that it's informative. It would be better if there were some sort of pamphlet, or if they could use the on-board screens to identify some of the sites that the narrator is referring to, as it was not always easy to follow along. Also, it would be nice if the narration were optional by headset/headphones. I did enjoy learning about the different areas along the Hudson, but I also found myself wishing for a quiet ride like we had on the ride back to Wall Street. My only complaint, is that the ship's windows were dirty and hard to see through. It is understandable that the boat will not be clean for the ride back, but it should be cleaned before making the trip to Cold Spring.
